Downloading and Installing Barcode Font

If you are a consignor in a sale using barcodes with TagIt or TagItLite, you will need to download and install this barcode font.  Note:  If you previously downloaded the font but it is no longer working with new sale profiles, you may need to download and install again because IDAutomation changed the name of the font and the old font is no longer used with our profiles.  This only needs to be done one time and is not necessary to do again for future sales.
